Quebrada de San Lorenzo

Reviewed By Fern_Fronds - Buenos Aires, Argentina

Nice place to wander in nature and see the cloud forest. A few toursity bits at the entrance - but actually quite nice to be able to east and drink nearby. Trekking and horseriding are available if you like.
The place is a bit disappointing as it claims to be a private reserve and signs ask you to respect nature and only go with a guide. But this doesn't seem to be the case and it is open to the public and you can just walk in. So there is also quite a lot of rubbish and damage to plants and the hillside from people climbing around, picking things ad making a bit of a mess.

Reserva del Huaico

Reviewed By Schaapblater - Utrecht, The Netherlands

We had a couple of hours left in Salta before our bus would leave, so we decieded to visit this reserve. The reserve itself is a nice area with quite a few birds (if you're lucky) and makes for a nice, although at times steep, walk on narrow tracks. The only way to visit the park is by guided tour, but this does not add much to the experience. The guides speak only Spanish, but even to the Argentine folks in our group he was awfully quiet. Besides, the pace was terribly slow, making the walk much more tiresome than it should have been.
Overall, visiting the reserve is a good way of spending a few hours in the surroundings of Salta, but it is not very exciting. I assume the natural parks "close" to Salta are better (but not managable in a few hours).
This reserve is located about 7km outside of Salta and can easily be reached by taxi (35 pesos), bus, or bike (if you can find a bike rental in Salta). You have to make a reservation to enter the reserve, which can be done via email or phone.

Finca Lesser

Reviewed By berthevh - Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Great experience. A little late with this update but we visited with a group in october 2011 and had a great time. A 2hr's horseride through nice landscape, for the ones who did not want to go horsebackriding there was a nice walk on the huge premises, afterwards a very good lunch accompanied with guitarmusic and songs. Very hospitable and friendly! Really nice to spend a day like this, I can really recommend it!

Es un lugar de paz. Simple y bella, con espacio para todos, se puede estar afuera, sentado y en un televisor se transmite la misa. Hermosa!

Polygon A Ecological Reserve

Reviewed By Sebastian Dardo H

La Reserva tiene varios senderos de dificultad bastante sencilla.
Algunas veces las huellas de los senderos se hace difusa y puedes salirte del que recorres.
Recomiendo en verano llevar protector solar y mucha agua y gorro.
Se hecha en falta algún rió o arroyo como en la quebrada.
Muy lindo los senderos, aunque a veces es fácil perder la huella y salirse del mismo.

El Mirador

Reviewed By Trotamundos D - Avellaneda, Argentina

Desafortunadamente fuimos un 1 de enero, día que no había nadie para indicarnos cómo llegar a este mirador, nadie de turismo ni guías autóctonos. Al entrar en la zona natural y agreste de la reserva de la Quebrada de San Lorenzo, no había absolutamente nada que nos indicase el camino para llegar a este mirador, en dónde también se encontraría el monumento "los ángeles de Salta", homenajeando a las turistas francesas asesinadas en este lugar.
Lamentable.

Museo Didactico de la Gesta Guemesiana y Gaucha

Reviewed By Silvina E - Province of Salta, Argentina

Ha sido inaugurado este año. Era un homenaje pendiente al Héroe Gaucho. Se realizó en la casa natal de Guemes, por lo que es una vieja casona llena de historia, que pasó por muchas actividades antes de ser recuperada para Museo. Consta de una recreación animada de flashes de la vida del General. Se pueden ver estatuas de terracota homenajeando a los gauchos en plena lucha de defensa de nuestra Patria. Se puede ver la puerta por donde dicen habría salido Guemes antes de ser emboscado en esa noche fatídica que definió su partida. Es una visita para realizar con niños y jóvenes.

Don Numas Posada Spa

Reviewed By Kristolg

On a recent trip to charming San Lorenzo, my husband and I made appointments for a massage.
The masseuse (not entirley sure he was even trained) gave me the worst massage ever -- practically burning my skin with violent friction rubbing that I had to tell him to stop or flinched away in pain. Then to top it off, he made me feel so utterly uncomfortable (no sheet over me), just awkwardly placed towels somewhat draped over me. My husband didn't even stay for his paid appointment and we left with me in tears.
This place was not what I had expected, the only thing it had going for it was it wasn't that pricey.
Loved San Lorenzo, but wouldn't send my worst enemy to this alleged spa.

Plaza Ejercito Argentino

Plaza ejercito Argentino, Aqui sucedio un hito historico. El Coronel Dorrego, jefe de la retaguardia del Ejercito del Norte, combatio exitosamente el 21 de Enero de 1814 a las tropas realistas en el combate de las Lomas de San Lorenzo. Es una sencilla plaza, donde se ouede apreciar el consejo deliberante y la primera y unica escuela de San Lorenzo.

Linda plaza, con un par de juegos para los chicos. Al parecer hubo un hito histórico en este lugar. Aquí Dorrego se enfrentó a las tropas realistas en la batalla de las lomas de San Lorenzo.
